Everywear Games, the dedicated smartwatch game development studio formed by veteran talent from Remedy, Digital Chocolate and Rovio, today released their debut fantasy adventure title – Runeblade™ – exclusively on Apple Watch. A fully original smartwatch game, Runeblade combines simple pick-up-and-play design with increasing depth and complexity over days, weeks and months of gameplay.
“April 2015 marks the beginning of smartwatch gaming. We’re thrilled to be at the forefront of Apple Watch game development with the release our first title, Runeblade,” said Aki Järvilehto, CEO of Everywear Games. “Our goal is to create the best smartwatch game experiences, and that’s meant designing specifically for the unique demands of smartwatch play from the start. It’s an exciting journey, and this is just the beginning.”
Set in a magical land of high fantasy, Runeblade casts the player as the High Priestess of the War Mages, charged with stopping an ancient evil from destroying the world. Players must collect and upgrade an arsenal of weapons, armor, spells and more to survive against the deadliest creatures in the realm.
Runeblade captures the excitement of role-playing games in a form optimized to be enjoyed easily on smartwatches in quick, satisfying, 5-15-second bursts of action. While Runeblade is played entirely on Apple Watch, it is supported by an iPhone client that lets players access the Black Market for magic items or the Library for the lore behind this ambitious adventure.
Runeblade is free to download now on Apple Watch and will be updated frequently with new levels, enemies and features. For more information, please visit Runeblade’s official website at www.everyweargames.com/runeblade.
